JL Audio ZR650-CSi #91122 – 6.5″ 2-Way Component System
The JL Audio ZR650-CSi features 6.5-inch (165 mm) component woofers with Kurt Müller cones and suspensions, precision-machined field plates and die-cast alloy baskets. The woofer design benefits from JL Audio’s vast woofer design experience and advanced modeling systems.
When the goal is superior component woofer performance, the things that truly matter are: consistency in cone mass, cone thickness and suspension compliance. This is why we turn to our partners at Germany’s Dr. Kurt Müller & Co. for critical cone and suspension elements in our top-flight component woofers. Their track record of manufacturing precision and meticulous quality control is very well established in the loudspeaker industry; although most loudspeaker manufacturers prefer to avoid the premium that this quality commands.
While it has become fashionable to use stiff, exotic materials for component speaker cones, these tend to create upper mid-range colorations that require aggressive crossover designs and/or equalization to control. By contrast, Müller’s low mass, mineral-filled polypropylene cones and butyl rubber surrounds are inherently well damped to deliver an uncolored, neutral midrange without any “artificial flavoring”. This keeps crossover design simple and renders a smooth, clean mid-range presentation, on and off axis.
The ZR component tweeters included in this system feature 1-inch aluminum domes with rubber-roll suspensions that damp unwanted ringing while delivering spectacular high-frequency extension. A flush-mounting fixture with a classy electro-formed ring provides a sophisticated touch in any installation.
ZR crossover networks are bi-amp capable and built with super-premium component parts, including U.S.-made Mills™ resistors mounted on an extruded aluminum heat sink, polypropylene capacitors, and segmented air-core inductors. Five levels of tweeter attenuation are provided, as well as four levels of mid-range presence adjustment, for twenty possible voicing combinations!
Woofer grilles are included, each consisting of a black grille tray and a black steel mesh grille with an electroformed “ZR” logo.
Our reference quality ZR component speakers are made for those seeking the highest possible levels of audio performance and are the pinnacle of the JL Audio component speaker lineup. JL Audio ZR650-CSi series component speakers will make your music sound its very best, whether you like rap, rock, reggae, or classical. JL Audio obsessed over every little detail of their ZR series components, so these speakers will reproduce the most complex musical passages with lifelike accuracy, even in the unforgiving mobile environment.
